 Chinese Paper Cutting or Jianzhi (??) is the first type of papercutting design, since paper was invented by Cai Lun in the Eastern Han Dynasty in China. The art form later spread to other parts of the world with different regions adopting their own cultural styles. Because the cut outs are also used to decorate doors and windows, they are sometimes referred to "chu?ng hu?" (??), meaning Window Flower.

MandarinGarden provide the free paper-cut lesson for you and your friends. Besides this, we also have other free interesting culture courses such as weiqi, zither and Chinese knot regularly updated in this website, Just call and appoint the courses you are interested.
